The Last Dragon must create a kingdom of his own…

Embarking on his ultimate voyage, Arthur, The Last Dragon, must brave the high seas and battle his way back to Britain in The Ice King, the explosive conclusion to M.K. Hume’s Twilight of the Celts trilogy. The perfect read for fans of Bernard Cornwell and Ian Ross.

‘Historical fiction of the most bloodthirsty and roistering kind’ – Australian Bookseller & Publishers Magazine

It is several years now since Arthur, the Last Dragon of Britain, has set foot on home soil. Roaming the Land of the Denes, he has not only engaged in brutal and bloody conflict with the barbaric Geats, but he has also unearthed the most evil force within the royal court of Heorot. And, under the guidance of Stormbringer, the mighty Sae Dene king, he has honed his skills as a commander.

Now the time has come for Arthur to brave the dangers of the frozen north as he and a band of daring sea-faring warriors prepare to embark on his ultimate voyage – to return to Britain and to create a kingdom of his own…

Hume deftly navigates the Arthurian legends, populating them with likable and despicable characters, and casting them in a fully realized historical setting
